Restaurant Night Out – Mici’s on Monday, April 27

This Monday, April 27, Mici on Colorado Blvd. AND in Stapleton will donate 25% of their sales for people who mention Park Hill Elementary back to our school. We had an amazingly successful auction, but we aren’t having Fundrun this year so every 25% helps! You can call or place an online order at ​www.miciItalian.com. Mici will do curbside pick up or touch-free delivery. ​***Just make sure to mention Park Hill School when you order.***

Coffee. with Ken

Hello!
We hope this finds you and yours well. There a couple of things about which we wanted to touch base with everyone.

¡Hola!
Esperamos que esto te encuentre bien a ti y a los tuyos. Hay un par de cosas sobre las que queríamos tocar base con todos.

Coffee with Ken – Friday, April 24th from 8am to 9am BYOC&D at your place
Join us (virtually) for Coffee with Ken next Friday from 8:00 until 9:00. Principal Burdette will update everyone on our current learning sitution with what he knows and what to expect. We are going to give it a go using Zoom since that seems to be able to handle large groups. Everyone will be muted as they join.

Because we only have an hour (classroom morning meetings start at 9:00) we would like to consolidate questions as much as possible in order to get everyone’s question answered. If you have a question you’d like Principal Burdette to answer please send it ahead of time.

Letter regarding Specials

Parents:
The purpose of this email is to hopefully answer some questions about Specials classes and to provide some clarity around the expectations. Specials ideally should be a place of joy and fun for your student – We do NOT want this to be overwhelming for you or your student. Everything you need to know about Specials classes can be found in the email. Please save it as a reference point.

Specials Expectations:  Our hope is that students can complete one 20 minute Specials class per day.  Go directly to the website to find assignments and helpful resources.   https://sites.google.com/dpsk12.net/phspecials/home

Possible switch from Discovery Link to YMCA – Info

Dear Park Hill Families:

As I recently communicated prior to the closing of our school buildings, Park Hill is considering switching after-school programming for next year. We have had a long standing relationship with Discovery Link; however, due to a constant change in site-based leadership as well as parent feedback, we are exploring other options for the 20-21 school year.

Attached is information from the YMCA.  As many of you are familiar with the YMCA as a whole, I have been impressed with what they can offer, and what their plans would be for Park Hill, should we decide to move forward with them as our after-school care provider.

Friday Folder, April 11th

Happy Friday PHE Parents:

I hope this message finds you well and in good health. I want to personally thank you for your patience, perseverance, and support as we tackle this new practice of Remote Learning. We knew there would be some challenges with this roll-out, and we continue to make improvements each day. Nonetheless, I am very proud of our students and teachers for engaging in the online learning this week, and thank each of you as parents and family members for your help and support. These times are not ideal in numerous ways, and I am thankful for the Park Hill community.

Please continue to reach out to your student’s teacher(s) and/or the Administration with any questions or needs. Our hope is for students to begin to be more independent with this work starting next week, especially in the older grades. The one area where we ask for your continued support is teaching your student how to mute/unmute their screen when in Google Meets. This will help limit the noise and lead to more engaging conversation and rigorous academics.
